Woot i found the thread!

Anyway my 87 only stayed stock for a few days. It got a full 2.25 inch exhaust with a hushpower muffler and a fart can on the rear. K&N. Loosing the POV and putting a spare DSM BOV i got.

I need a turbo! I have one seized one i bought on the car. I have one with huge shaft play i got for $50. Hopefully its not going to be alot to have ADP rebuild it.



my turbocoupe? Its for sale :D Its thunderbird #9 for me now. Owned for 2 years

my 9th Thunderbird is a 83 turbo coupe. Bought it as a basketcase. So far the bottem trim has been removed and bottem two tone painted black from the weird grey/green color. The interior is black leather and the seats will be upgraded to 35th anniversary stang in the upcoming weeks. All gauges are hidden and the interior looks stock

Car has been lowered 3 inches. It rides awesome, dosent scrape on anything. Im really happy with my combo. New shocks, Trim has all been painted body color and window trim is black. Tint to come soon.

Ahh mod list

Stock long block
Felpro 1035
12point head bolts
new stock head and stock cam
ported E6
Stock T3
3inch DownPipe
3inch exhaust dumped before axle
Supra FMIC
STi BOV
Ported lower
Gutted upper, ported for 60mm 5.0 TB
Large VAM
LA3 Computer
35# injectors
255lph
Kirban AFPR
B&M ripper shifter
Homemade Gillis valve 20 PSI

Ahhh I know who you are now, Seen your car on foxtbirdcougarforums. I'm still jealous.

I really want to get a four eye to mod but I think I had better finish my box bird first or it'll never get done.
